Help me diagnose these leaks and rattle

Hi guys, my car has some leaks on the passenger side of the engine bay. mainly below and behind the vtec solenoid. its on top the transmission as well. could this only be a vtec solenoid gasket. also the power steering pump seems to be wet.
Also when i turn my steering to the left while accelarating i get this rattle sound. if i let go of the gas or straighten out it goes away. i hav posted up a youtube video. max out ur volume to hear the rattle kick in at about 0:07.

vtec solenoid
cam seal
dizzy o ring

or coolant line

^^ any of those can cause a leak there


Not sure on the rattle... could be your steering rack - check all your ball joints etc as well as your wheel bearing.


I don't see where your pump is "wet" - but i noticed you're running without ABS? what's the liquid on that shock tower?

in the second pic u can see oil leaking from that hose below the distributor. what is that hose?

in this pic u can see the leak on the ps pump. would using non honda ps fluid cause this. as the previous owner used some crappy fluid.

Re: Help me diagnose these leaks and rattle

also i just took the car to honda for a full inspection and in the report they gave me they mentioned front and rear crank seal major leak. left axle seal leak, vtec spool valve gasket leaking, p.s pump minor leak.
where shud i look to spot front and rear crank seal leak. apart from the vtec area rest all of the engine is pretty dry.
